Blue Chalk Paint Desk... a beautiful and easy DIY, adding the perfect pop of color to my home! This instantly became the favorite homework station!

I’ve been itching to paint a new piece of furniture for a couple months now and finally got around to it. I found this gorgeous Colette Desk from Ave Home and painted it the prettiest blue. I am seriously obsessed with this desk. The curves and details on the hardware are gorgeous.

I used the Provence color from the Annie Sloan chalk paint line and love how it turned out. At first I was thinking of painting it white with the blue drawers, but then I decided to go bold and paint the whole desk in Provence. It adds the perfect pop of color in my house and makes the perfect homework station.

How to chalk paint a desk 

This desk came raw, so it was pretty much ready to be painted. Yay, no sanding! I decided to spray the paint on and it gave it a nice smooth finish.

Disassemble. First we removed the hardware and drawers and then placed a drop cloth under the desk.

Thin and spray. If you’re placing chalk paint in a paint sprayer, you’re going to need to thin the paint first. I added about 1 cup of paint and 2 to 3 Tablespoons of water. Then I sprayed 2 coats on.

Line drawers. Once the paint was dry, I added this fun polka dot liner to the drawers. To add the liner, I measured the drawer and then cut the liner to match. Then I peeled off the backing and pressed it into the drawers.

Wax. Finally I brushed on the wax to give it a nice smooth protective finish. I love the Annie Sloan soft wax.
